Possible if you remove the parcel shelf, are you having 5 pax in total? If not bags can be put on the seat..

But if you're having 5 pax, the hatch will be too small for long trips.

intending to rent from no birds, do you guys think it is better to buy the zero excess at around $100 from them, or just rely on my travel insurance, which covers up to $2000 excess?

Believed this is covered before but like to share my thoughts

Getting excess from no birds
- hassle free compared to relying on ur own travel insurance

- anything happens, just call no birds and report to them. Await for instructions.

- no need to pay the excess upfront

- cons is additional premium/expenses

Relying on own travel insurance
- anything happens, just call no birds and report to them. Await for instructions

- need to pay the excess upfront

- need to follow up with no birds on repair charges and etc. Get the receipt and claim from insurance company. This will take some time

was checking car rental cost for my coming trip.
realized that the drop fee (one way fee) is quite substantial. If I book a car for one week, the cost itself is like only 550 if car is returned in the same city, then the drop fee is another 300 for returning in another city.

Because that's the cost of 'returning' the car to its original place.. but i feel it's just BS, because the next renter could be driving to your original destination..

yes, their should be exchanges between the two cities, not always one way.

download Ola app, new user gets 50% off rides in first 2 weeks ... I got promo code for AUD 20 if interested

take Ola car into city about AUD 30 ... 50% is just AUD 15

We Uber-ed into city at about AUD 30, 32.. And then picked up from Bayswater at Adelaide Terrace in the morning. After that straight to Margaret River.

More relaxing.

I have a 1 year old with me. Does Uber and Ola provide child seat? Or this child seat thing can close 1 eye...

Wanna ask a noob question.

Can we use the phone as GPS in Perth or Australia in general? My Aussie colleague said that we cant touch the phone at ANY time during driving or stopping. Is this true?

It's true, the rules are different in SG where you can touch while your car is stopped.. but not in Aust..
